Blog Tour Highlights

A couple of weeks ago my novel, Mentoring Mr Singleman, went on a virtual book tour. This involves a series of book bloggers from across the globe (Jen is based in Honolulu, but was kind enough not to be sniffy about the surfing scenes) posting a critique of the book on their sites, having been sent an electronic copy two or three weeks previously. If all goes well, the tour follows a pre-published programme, so that in the spirit of “if this is Tuesday it must be Belgium” each day brings a new delight.

Inevitably from time to time a blogger doesn’t make their scheduled stop – these guys have to-be-read piles a mile high. I was particularly grateful though to Jorie at and Linda at, who although they hadn’t managed to read the novel took the time to publish in the first case a lengthy author interview, and in the second an extract from the novel, and to give enthusiastic social media support.

The book tour was curated by Aimee Coveney at, and I am very grateful to her for putting together such a stimulating and enjoyable virtual roadtrip.

Below are the cherry-picked “best bits” from the reviews – thankfully everyone had something nice to say! If these responses by independent readers whet your appetite, The e-book of Mentoring Mr Singleman can be downloaded from Amazon for less than the price of a coffee, and the paperback for quite a bit more.
